Maj. Frederick Palmer, war correspondent,-writer and lecturer, has re turned from a six months' tour through France, Knjrland. Italy, Poland, tier many, Austria and Hungary. "The chief interest in Kurojie. to day," said Maj. Palmer, "centers in ItiiM.is and (lermany. France is un popular throughout Kurope because of her predominant military spirit. The victory over (Germany has revived the old ha'tred held by the French fin- that country, and the war like spirit devel oped by Napoleon in 17IM1. "The" Fiench look on (iermsny as a burglar at the, door, and feel that the allies have deserted them, snd that they alone must now sjsnd guard over Germany. "If we are to have peace on an estab lished basis in Kurope. and commerce and industries are to be restored, tier many must lie allowed to have raw materials in order that her men can go to work. While I was in tiernisny there were thousand of workmen idle in Berlin and other large cities because there was nothing for them to do in the factories. America and tireat Brit ain have realized this, snd are willing to let (iermany have raw materials. but France says no. We want the raw materials for our eountry. -The I'nited States is unpopular in Germany, as we are in France, Italy and all over Kurope, because they blame this country for everything that has occurred since the armistice, in cluding the high cost of living. People who have it are spending money there as reclietslv as they are doing in New York.

Nation-wide Campaign Has Been Start ed to Enable Every Municipality to Know How to Deal with Its Public School Problems. New York, April 28. A nation-wide campaign to '.measure service of teach ers, school equipment and courses of instruction." so that every municipal ity may know how to deal with its public school problem, has, been start ed, it was announced here to-day by a national committee compiled of secre taries of chambers of commerce and superintendents of schools representing 64 American cities. On the ground that the public schools of the I'nited States re facing a grave crisis due to the alleged need of $2. 50tl,0(M).(MMt to provide adequate build ings, and $H),fHHi,fH)0 for raising sal aries to stop the increasing shortage of teachers, the national committee says that it is enlisting the aid of chambers of commerce all over the country for the purpose of acquainting every citi zen and taxpayer with the facts. The .committee was organized last February at a meeting in Cleveland. O., raHed by Dr. (ieorge I). St raver of Co lumbia university, chairman of the eommiisinn on emergency in education of the National Kditcation association and the American City bureau. Officers of the committee were elected as fol lows: IH-. Strsver. chairman: Herbert S. West. Hoche'ster. N. V., Harold Ia vidson, Erie, Pa.: Fred A. Richardson.! secretary. New York, executive com- mitt.ee; "Henry Snyder, Jersey City, N.j .1- K. G. Joiies. Cleveland. O.. J. H. lieveridge, Omaha, Neb., Raymond B. : (iibbs, Kansas City, Kan.: S. B. Price, Bridgeport.

Ier of commerce anil superintendents: of schools of all cities with a popula-; tion of 8.000 and more, and which will ; be followed by four other question naires makes the following inquiries: j "How much training do your teacher j have? How well do yon pay your" nehool employes! What special in- I durentent do you offer the teachers in your schools?'' Jjiter questionnaires win a&K, among otner things: now well do you bouse your school children ? What is your educational program ? How adequately do you safeguard the children's health? How much docs edu cation cost your city? How will the rising costs be met ?' The American City bureau hpre which, with Dr. Strayer, initiated aud is carrying out the present plants, an nounced its desire "to make the main facts in the present emergency quickly available" for thiwe cities where school problems are pressing hardest for solu tion. The question of getting high grade teachers and schooleniployes, he said, has become a more perplexing one than ever before. Many men and wom en, it is said, have stopped going to normal schools and teachers colleges to prepare themselves as pedagogues. In round numbers". Secretary Kichardson said, there will bp 50 per cent fewer graduates from these schools in the I'nited States in Wttt than in 117. "The I'nited States is now actually 3.1.0(H) short of the number of teachers required to fill positions." said Mr. Kichardson. "This shortage exists aft er "about 65,000 make-shift teachers 1 have been employed; in other wor,ds, the real shortage of trained and ex perienced teachers is fully JO0.000. Thn cost of living has increased at least SO per cent in the past six years and yet teachers have had a salary increase' of, less than 30 per cent Rince"l!)14. Build, ing programs alio have Wen held up by the war. Many communities have outgrown their school plants and over crowded hall-day sessions, and the forced usp of portable and temporary school buildings have been evils which crv out for remedy." Even After All. A suspicious looking customer was boasting to a grocer of the cheapness of 10 pounds of sugar he had bought at a rival slurp. "Let me weigh the package," said the grocer. The other assented, and it was found two pounds short. The man looked perplexed for a mo ment and then said: "I don't lhink he cheated me much, for while he was getting the sugar I pocketed two tins of condensed milk." Edinburgh Scotsman.
